Birthday Surprise

Just as Louise was berating Peter for spending an excessive amount of time away from the table on a bog break, the lights dimmed and the room was illuminated by a cake bearing gaily lit candles, for 'twas Ms Louise's birthday, and yea verily did the Backbencher resound with the joyous chorus of Happy Birthday.

No Idea celebrated this joyous occasion with a solid second, just three behind Lipstick on a Pig, who have now become a nigh unbeatable force to rival former phenomenon, Toxteth O'Grady. While obviously packing in the pure geek quiz brain power Toxteth had, LOAP has, on average, much better haircuts.

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

And I have no doubt we would have won had one Master Zak and his preternatural knowledge of cinematic arcanery be in attendance.

Here are some movie taglines we did not get correct.

For 3 men, the Civil War wasn't hell, it was practice.
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

His Whole life was a Million to One Shot

One Man's Struggle to take it Easy
Ferris Bueller's Day Off

This is the weekend they didn't play golf.
Deliverance. (I think we put Breakfast at Bernie's)

And a big Well Done Sir!! to Master Colin for his own special brand of arcanery.
Little did I know that Spencer Perceval was Britain's only assasinated PM,

or that Sir Winston Churchill's home was Chartwell.

Such prodigious learning is to be applauded. Next time we'd better well fucking win.

It's so pathetic having no comments under my posting, I though I would leave my own.
That's definitely not sad.
